Corporate Fraud

Financial Fraud
Tax evasion, public corruption, health care fraud, telemarketing fraud, and terrorist financing all fall under Financial Fraud.

Identity Theft
With identity theft, investigators will look for faulty loan or credit card applications, false withdrawals from bank accounts, dishonest use of calling cards, and using an alternate name to receive benefits.

Internet Fraud
Internet fraud occurs when criminals attempt to take advantage of victims via the internet. This includes theft of personal information or fraudulent transactions that result in the significant loss of money.

Corporate Slip and Fall
This type of fraud involves individuals who purposely organize a fall while inside a store in order to file a claim. They will go as far as to throw water on the floor in order to ensure a slip.

Transit Fraud
This kind of fraud occurs when passengers on buses, subways, or streetcars don’t remain seated or hold rails and fall when the vehicle stops. There are also cases in which individuals allow their feet to be run over or stand in the way of the mirror.

Ticket Fraud
With ticket fraud, a person will purchase tickets for a sporting event or concert that aren’t legitimate. Often these tickets have already been used or don’t exist.

Mechanical Repair Fraud
Often a mechanic will call for fixes that are overpriced or not necessary.

Expense Claim Fraud
When employees pocket runover business expenses they are committing fraud. Often, individuals will claim to stay in hotels costing $200 a night when in reality, they stay in cheap motels and keep the remainder of the money.

Theft of Inventory
With theft of inventory, investigators will look into whether employees steal products or order more than the store needs. Sometimes employees will claim products are expired when they aren’t so they can take the items home.
